Hopkins farm, Haddonfield (Cretaceous of the United States)

Also known as Hadrosaurus type

Where: Camden County, New Jersey (39.9° N, 75.0° W: paleocoordinates 39.2° N, 44.9° W)

• coordinate estimated from map

• small collection-level geographic resolution

When: Woodbury Formation (Matawan Group), Early/Lower Campanian (83.5 - 70.6 Ma)

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: estuary or bay; lithified, micaceous, green, blue marl

• "tenacious" green marl, also described as "dark blue approaching black, micaceous, stiff, and tenacious. Upon free exposure to air, it becomes, after a week or two, light bluish gray in color, and then it crumbles easily."

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils

Collected by J. Hopkins, W. Foulke in 1838–1858; reposited in the ANSP

Collection methods: salvage, quarrying, surface (float), surface (in situ), mechanical,

• Originally discovered by Mr. John E. Hopkins while digging marl on his farm "about twenty years ago," then excavated more thoroughly by William Parker Foulke.
